Edmonton, Alberta (November 4, 2013) — Actyl, a leading Canadian workforce solutions firm, will make a special recruiting trip to Zagreb, Croatia to interview candidates to fill more than 400 jobs in the hospitality industry throughout Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia.

The trip, which will take place in mid-November, aims to bring temporary foreign workers (TFOs) into Canada to fill the labor gap that currently exists, particularly in the western part of the country.

“We are very pleased to embark on this trip to Croatia and meet with hard-working and talented candidates who are interested in both a job and a new adventure,” said Dr. Linda West, president of Actyl. “While most of the world has experienced slow economic growth over the past several years, western Canada has been booming thanks largely to oil and gas exploration. As a result, there is a labor shortage in a number of industries, including hospitality. We aim to help fill the gap by finding exceptional temporary foreign workers from Zagreb this month.”

Actyl works with more than 75 employers in Canada and seeks candidates who have experience working in restaurants and the trades. The firm has years of experience finding and recruiting TFOs, which are critical for businesses that need to fill workforce gaps. Individuals who accept jobs in Canada find them to be highly fulfilling, while the chance to travel and live abroad can be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

Alberta, Saskatchewan and British Columbia are somewhat unique in today’s global marketplace, as they represent some of the few places where rapid job growth is evident. Paired with the growing economy is the fact that the region has an aging population, leaving more jobs open than can be filled by its current labor force.

“In many ways, western Canada is still an open frontier, with a wide range of possibilities for entrepreneurial and industrious individuals,” said West. “In many cases, these jobs lead to other great opportunities, so this is a chance you won’t want to pass up. We are looking forward to visiting Croatia and meeting potential candidates from many different backgrounds.”

Actyl officials will be available at the Four Points by Sheraton Panorama Zagreb from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. November 13-18, and will offer free information sessions and interviews. To learn more about this opportunity and to apply for open positions, visit http://www.actyl.com/jobs.

Actyl Group Makes Third Trip to Belize to Recruit Workers

Company seeks to find workers to fill western Canada labor shortage.

Regina, SK, Canada (April 3, 2013) — Actyl Group, a leading international recruiting firm, will once again return to Belize in an effort to find more skilled workers to fill the current labor shortage in western Canada.

During the trip, which will be the company’s third in just four months, Actyl Group representatives will interview people trained in a number of areas. The company is looking for people to fill key positions throughout the provinces of Saskatchewan and Alberta, and plans on making nearly 100 new job offers in April alone.

“We have had great success finding outstanding workers in Belize since we started recruiting in this area, but Saskatchewan, Alberta and the rest of the Western Canada region continue to see major labor shortages,” said Adrian Schulz of Actyl Group. “The people we have met on our trips so far have been exceptional candidates, with great English, from hospitality to skilled trades. We look forward to meeting more potential workers as we again head to Central America.”

As a result of its previous trips to Belize, the Actyl Group made more than 70 job offers, with many of these candidates already about to start their new lives. “It is such an honor to be selected by an Employer in Canada – it will be an adventure. I very much appreciate Actyl for helping me get this opportunity and for supporting me every step of the way” says candidate Stacy Ramos of Belize. Western Canada’s labor shortage stems from the fact that the region experienced slow economic growth until about 2007, and many of its young people left for opportunities in other parts of the country. Over the past five years, however, the region has seen a tremendous amount of economic growth, spurring the need to bring in more workers to fill critical positions.

During its April trip, Actyl Group will particularly be looking for welders, heavy-duty mechanics, ironworkers, sheet metal workers, fabricators, machinists, geomembrane installers, commercial steel framers, flat roofers, small engine repair specialists, automotive technicians and plasterers. One employer also featured will be franchised McDonald’s Restaurants, which was recently named one of Canada’s Top 5 Best Employers for the ninth time.

“There are numerous top employers looking for workers who will bring a great work ethic and dependable skills to these positions, and we haven’t been let down yet when meeting with candidates in Belize,” said Schulz. “If you would like to explore the opportunities provided by western Canada’s recent economic growth, we invite you to meet with our team.”

Actyl Group will be at 19 Barbados Street in the City of Belmopan April 8-11, 2013, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day. The sessions are free, and potential candidates should bring a copy of their resumes, passports and any diplomas or certificates. To learn more, visit http://www.actyl.com/belize.
